Men and Style reaches beyond standard “what to wear” advice: it is equal parts style guide and intriguing conversation about masculine identity in the world of fashion. The book offers a much-needed source of inspiration for the growing number of men who enjoy expressing who they are through their clothes, manners and lifestyle. Explore the history of men’s style and learn from the personal wisdom of some of the most notable tastemakers in the industry and beyond. The book addresses everything from the importance of ties to where to drink in New Orleans to the worst corsage ever worn to a prom. Coggins shares his thoughts on clothes, manners (and misbehaviour) and other gentlemanly concerns, including premature gray, socks or no socks, facial hair, corporate dressing, the difficulties of gift giving and other subjects that men want to discuss and are seeking a forum to do so.
